An International ITP conference will be held in a couple of days at Manhattan Beach, California. The conference, aimed at patients, caregivers and the medical community will be held from July 11th to the 13th at Manhattan Beach Marriott Hotel.
It will be the 14th Conference of it’s kind organised by the wonderful people at PDSA America, The Platelet Disorder Support Association.
The three day program will include authors, researchers and clinicians who all have a strong interest in helping ITP patients. There will also be PDSA Medical Advisors who will present programs at the conference. This conference provides a great opportunity to hear the latest information on ITP, meet others who are coping with ITP, and receive answers to any questions you might have. It is also a wonderful opportunity for carers of ITP children to meet other people caring for ITP patients. There will also be a patient mixer on Friday evening and a special family-oriented party Saturday evening.
The Full Program for the Conference can be found on the PDSA website.
It will be a great opportunity, if you have a chance to go.
We are particularly interested in this presentation by Martin L. Rossman titled, If You Can Worry Yourself Sick, You May Be Able to Imagine Yourself Well? Dr Martin Rossman is a pioneer in mind-body medicine. He is the founder of The Healing Mind, the co-founder of the Academy for Guided Imagery, a Clinical Faculty member at the University of California San Francisco Medical School, and an advisory board member of Dr. Andrew Weil’s Integrative Medicine Program at the University of Arizona.
